Eco-Friendly Storage Solutions

Share this on:

Looking to organize and de-clutter your home or workplace and want to do so with environmentally-sensitive materials?  Well, if you’re handy, or can hire a carpenter, one option is to build your own storage solutions from wheatboard, sunflower board, kirei board, formaldehyde-free MDF, reclaimed wood, or FSC-certified wood.

For a variety of pre-built storage options, check out these sources:

  • Green Forest Furniture — an online retailer of school, office, and residential laminated furniture that is made in the USA.  All pieces are urea formaldehyde-free, made from recycled wood using dowel construction techniques, and packaged in recycled cardboard.
  • Tedspace makes modular, stackable storage pieces to form a bookcase, media storage, closet organizer (like the one pictured here), room divider, and more, made from sustainable woods and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood veneers finished with low-VOC (volatile organic compounds) stains.  All made in the USA.
  • The Green Home Environmental Store offers under-the-bed storage drawers made with sustainably harvested wood from Oregon and Washington, hand-rubbed with a finish of tung oil and pure beeswax.  It’s free of toxic glues, formaldehyde, particle board, and can be configured to fit under twin, full, queen, or king size beds.
  • Even Target offers some eco-friendly storage options such as its Linear Bookcase & Storage Unit Collection which is made in the USA, from formaldehyde-free birch plywood with 100% nontoxic, water-based stains.
  • BuyOnlineNow is a retailer of all sorts of office storage supplies made with a large percentage of post-consumer recycled materials.
  • The Container Store now has numerous eco-friendly storage and organization solutions.

    Does your site have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it develop over time.
